The great search of finding a on toxic deodorant that works. I know I am not the only one that has had this issue. I know because ya’ll share your woes with me all the time. It is SO hard to switch to safer in this area but it’s SO important for you to do so. Many of you may not know whats lurking in your name brand deodorants but you’re about to learn!
Most conventional deodorants contain a list of toxic ingredients, such as aluminum chlorohydrate (may cause skin irritation, including contact dermatitis,) parabens (view side effects here,) propylene glycol (has been found to cause seizures and severe neurological symptoms) and triclosan (linked to the weakening of the immune system and thyroid issues,) among other questionable ones. For these reasons, I have taken a step back from the name brands that stores carry and tried to find a safer alternative. I have spent YEARS searching for a non toxic deodorant that works and doesn’t leave burns under my arms. Generally, those that are created with baking soda have this effect on me.
I have worked with Stink Bug Naturals several times over the last few years and I really love their brand of deodorants. Normally, I can use their regular formula but during my pregnancy and post partum, the influx of hormones has left me extra stinky. Stink Bug Naturals recently launched a new line of charcoal deodorants and after testing them, I have found they WORK! Thank goodness! It’s been hard having my deodorant not working during the summer. Ya’ll, I was taking 2-3 showers a day trying to beat the smell!
The Stink Bug Naturals charcoal deodorant are formulated without baking soda so that people with sensitive skin can use them. Their line is also aluminum free and gmo free so you can have no fear about what you are applying to your skin. I really like the Amber Sage scent but there is also Lavender and Vanilla Mint. These contain organic coconut oil which harbors moisturizing and odor-fighting properties, organic beeswax to help solidify the consistency, Non-GMO cornstarch which absorbs perspiration and odor causing bacteria, magnesium hydroxide which eliminates odors and activated charcoal which aids in detoxification.
I highly suggest trying the new charcoal line of deodorants by Stink Bug Naturals because they actually work! You can detox your pits and not have to worry about smelling stinky during the summer.
